Image Manager has been improved!

We’ve modernized the design of our Image Manager to make it easier to use. We’ve also added more functionality, including the ability to crop and resize images as well as to add filters.

To use Image Manager and check out the new functionality, navigate to [Design]>[Image Manager].

New function: Change sold-out text for individual items

Sold-out text can now be set on a per-item basis. Previously, sold-out text could only be set universally. Access this new setting at the item details page in Advanced mode.

New function: choose default number of items to display on mobile site

You can now choose whether to display 15, 30, or 60 items on the item list by default on the mobile site. Previously, no setting was available for the default number of items to display on mobile. To edit this setting, navigate to [Mobile Site]->[Item Page] in your Shop Manager and select an option in the [Items to display] field.

New function: Automatically set billing address as Sender if different from shipping address

We have added the function to automatically set billing address (rather than the store) as Sender on the shipping invoice if billing address and shipping address are different. If enabled, customers will retain the option to change the Sender field on checkout. To enable this function, navigate to [Operations]→[Shipping Details] and select “Allow customers to specify Sender.” The option to enable this function will appear.

New functionality added!

Over the last month, we’ve been very busy and have added several new features to Ochanoko for your convenience. Changes include:

1. The .shop top-level domain is now available for use to Deluxe plan subscribers. Please see our Pricing page at https://www.ocnk.com/payment/ for more details.

2. Registration links can be specified for different member groups. Customers who register using these links are automatically assigned to the member group in question. To enable this function, navigate to [Basic Settings]→[Member Groups] and find the [Registration URLs] section.

3. A list of all product reviews can be added to your shop page. Visitors to your store can click on this link and access a list of previously submitted reviews for all listed products. This function can be enabled in your Shop Manager at the [Layout / Images / Comments] page in an HTML5 template, or at the [Page Layout] page in XHTML or mobile templates.
